      1. Anthology of texts by philosophers, artists, and curators exploring the historical lineage of participatory practices in contemporary art, where the viewer moves from passive to active (or ‘productive’) role vis-à-vis works of art. See in particular Jacques Rancière ‘Problems and Transformations in Critical Art,’ Group Material ‘On Democracy,’ and Nicolas Bourriad ‘Relational Aesthetics,’ a usefully concise excerpted selection of a number of essays he has written on the topic over the years. Editor is a FW research advisor.
